Shot Fired on Alter Street
Several departments were armed and ready to protect Wednesday afternoon. An unmarked police van’s rear window exploded around noon today on 4th and Alter Street right around the time police were holding a warrant sweep in that area. In a matter of minutes 30 police cars were on the scene investigating. Yellow police tape guarded the cornors of the streets as neighbors watched on in suspense. After reviewing the area Police Chief Frank DeAndrea said armed forces didn’t find any evidence of a gun. Chief said he’s sure the police van was shot at. Onlookers and the Chief say they are proud of how quickly all of the officers came to the scene. The police officer is not injured. Anyone with information is asked to call police.
